An exclusive World Leprosy Day performance of “Treasures of Byzantium” held in the stunning surroundings of St Stephen Walbrook.
This concert performance of newly commissioned music and dance brings to vivid life four evocative Greek poems of the Byzantine era, including ‘Between Sea and Sky’ three largely unaccompanied choral and solo pieces by Irish composer Solfa Carlile and the world première of ‘Akathistos’ by BAFTA Award-winning composer, Nick Bicât, featuring choreography by Siân Hopkins and a range of unusual wind and percussion instruments.
Director of Music, James Potter, will lead the Cantata Dramatica choir and soloists whilst the Community Choir of St Stephen Walbrook will join for the closing scenes of strife and triumph.
Tickets cost £20 per person and are available from Cantata Dramatica: http://www.cantatadramatica.com/shop/treasures-of-byzantium-at-st-stephen-walbrook-wednesday-30-january-2019-7pm
